way to adjudicate the possibilities of what war means to the obama administration? >> well, i think that, i think that is absolutely right, it has been a continuation of the bush administration policies, and yes, administrations always try to push the outer bounds of the authority. but one thank is clear is that the laws of war have not changed even if the practice has changed. there are really three reasons that a country can, a state can use force outside of its borders. one, if it is the victim of an armed attack and second if the u.n. security council authorizes it, and three, assisting a state that requests it, and we have stretched that boundary as well far beyond what the laws of war call for. so i think that there is a very serious question about this question of perpetual war, but we should remember historically in the 20th century, the u.s. was at war virtually every decade of the 20th century, so if we think of ourselves as peaceful country that does not engage in war, we need to rethink that. >> that is right. david, i want to ask this question, because where we were bef

>>> let me finish tonight with this. the obama administration has found a way to offer birth control to women who want it without infringing on religious belief. it's a victory for the president and roman catholics. how do we ensure that religious organizations are not forced to pay for it? allow employees of religious institutions access to stand alone coverage for birth control from a third party. covering the costs with small offsets have to take parts or they will put their policies on sale. the key here is it gets around a pair of goals that were in don flikt. regular use of birth control is one that works. the other goal is to protect religions from doing something they believe is morally wrong. my own belief is that the solution the obama administration reached here is win/win. i say this to someone who believes in the clinton case, that abortion should be safe, legal and rare. getting birth control to women for free will keep it rare. to keep the catholic church out of that transaction keeps it closer to the goal. this is what good, smart, progressive, morally upright

hearing for the man nominated to be the next head of the cia. john brennan the architect of the obama administration's drone program strongly defended their use saying strikes only take place to prevent terror threats, not as punishment for them. >> i think there's a misimpression on the part of some of the american people who believe that we take strikes to punish terrorists for past transgressi transgressions. nothing could be further from the truth. we only take such actions as a last resort to save lives when there's no other alternative to taking an action that's going to mitigate that threat. >> democratic senator ron widen, when has demanded more insight to the legal justification, pressed brennan on the issue. >> you believe that the president should provide an individual american with the opportunity to surrender before killing them? >> any american who joins al qaeda will know full well that they have joined an organization that is at war with the united states and that has killed thousands upon thousands of individuals, many, many of them who are americans. so i think any a

think it is a great idea and that's what the obama administration is tapping into that while the nra and nra members have always been a very vocal, you could say minority they're hoping to tap into the silent majority of people who want more common sense when it comes to gun control, gun laws. >> before i let you get out of here. i do want to ask you about jesse jackson, jr., over the misuse of campaign funds. what's next for jesse jackson, jr.? >> well, the next step would be to have the announcement from the justice department with some more specifics. my colleagues at "the sun-times" have reported that the deal may not include a deal over what kind of prison time to serve and he thought he might have done better with the judge. the next step was to find out the details and exactly what he pled to. we also need to know if his wife now former alderman sandy jackson will get caught up with some kind of charges pressed against her because she served as his campaign manager and drew a salary from his campaign fund and is suspending from that fund that is at issue here. >> lynn sweet, c

a day after nbc news published a secret justice department memo outlining the obama administration's legal rationale for assassinating u.s. citizens overseas even when there is no intelligence indicating the targeted individual is engaged in an active plot to attack the u.s. on tuesday, white house press secretary jay carney was asked about the assassination program. this is part of his response. >> we have a knowledge united states that sometimes we use remotely piloted aircraft for strikes against specific al qaeda terrorists in order to prevent attacks on the nine states and seven american lives. we did that those strikes because they're necessary to mitigate ongoing actual threats to stop future tax and save american lives. the strikes are legal, ethical, and wise. u.s. government takes great care in deciding to pursue an al qaeda terrorist to ensure precision and to avoid loss of innocent life. >> indonesia, a leading member of the opposition movement has been shot dead in front of his own home. chokri belaid was an outspoken critic of the islamist-led government who criticize
debate about it. >> the other question it raised in your article is the obama administration asked the faa to speed up processing of integrated drones into civilian air space. they could be used by police departments, farmers, builders, hollywood, but with this progress comes some concern, right? >> absolutely. so the article by my wonderful colleague lev grossman, i believe the cover line is "drones come home." what he did is after explaining to people how much we're relying on drone technology abroad for national security, he's saying what people may be even less aware of is the degree to which they are about to come back and really explode in their domestic use. law enforcement, border control, possibly paparazzi flying little drones over the backyards or god forbid up to the windows of celebrities and a variety of other uses. everything from farmers using them to look at their crops to real estate agents who are creating little videos of properties they're trying to sell. there are a lot of promising aspects of this, as with most any technology. for instance, the internet, it's
terror which has grown 700% under the obama administration. whatever the benefit of the drone strikes, they have created enormous resentment among some here in the region, who view the strikes as another sign of american arrogance. everywhere i travel, from yemen -- >> i think americans they have no right. they have no right. this is our fight. >> reporter: to pakistan. >> you can keep saying, yes, you are hitting the top leadership. but the by-product of this is anger, anger among the innocent people who are getting killed. so you're just creating more terrorists. >> reporter: now the man who signs off on the kill list from a basement office in the white house, john brennan, about to be questioned in front of the world. >> i suggest to you that these targeted strikes against al qaeda terrorists are indeed ethical and just. >> reporter: in pakistan alone, there have been more than 300 drone strikes in the last decade, killing thousands of al qaeda and taliban, but more than 300 civilians, as well. a world away in remote villages, you can hear them. like a distant muted chain saw. a du
